Yacht Sentinel is not responsible for the operation, availability or failure of such third party systems or facilities or loss of data due to poor or lack of coverage.  Due to limitations of security systems and because Yacht Sentinel Limited does not install or connect the products and because the products may be used in conjunction with products not manufactured by Yacht Sentinel Limited, Yacht Sentinel Limited cannot guarantee the performance of the security system and shall not be responsible for circumstances resulting from the product’s inability to operate. In no event will Yacht Sentinel Limited be liable to any buyer or Users for any loss or damage, whether direct or indirect or consequential or incidental, including without limitation, any damages for lost profits, stolen goods, or from claims made by any other party caused by defective goods or otherwise relating to the products sold. Notwithstanding the above, Yacht Sentinel Limited maximum liability will be strictly limited to the purchase price of any defective product. Yacht Sentinel provides no warranty arising out of (a) your use of the Product contrary to the conditions or instructions or the terms of this License; (b) modification of the Product made by anyone other than Yacht Sentinel; (c) damages due to improper use of the Product in combination with any operating system not authorized by Yacht Sentinel. NEITHER YACHT SENTINEL, ITS LICENSORS NOR ANY RESELLER MAKES AND YOU RECEIVE ANY EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT) WITH RESPECT TO THE PRODUCT OR THE DOCUMENTATION, ALL OF WHICH ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.”

Yacht Sentinel Limited warrants its products to be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use for a period of 12 months from the date of purchasing. If the warranted products are returned to Yacht Sentinel Limited during the period of coverage, Yacht Sentinel Limited will, at its option, repair or replace without charge those items it finds defective. Any replacement and/or repaired parts are warranted for the remainder of the original warranty or ninety (90) days, whichever is longer.

There is absolutely no warranty on applications, software, programs, and all software products. Except as specifically stated herein, all express or implied warranties whatsoever, statutory or otherwise, including without limitation any implied warranty of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose are expressly excluded.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

NEITHER YACHT SENTINEL, ITS LICENSORS NOR ANY RESELLER SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSSES OR DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LOSS OF DATA, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR LOST PROFITS) PERTAINING IN ANY WAY TO THE PRODUCT, OR TO ANY OF YACHT SENTINEL’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS LICENSE, EVEN IF YACHT SENTINEL, ITS LICENSORS OR THE RESELLER HAS BEEN MADE AWARE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES.  YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE LIABILITY OF RESELLER AND/OR YACHT SENTINEL OR ITS LICENSORS, (INDIVIDUALLY AND IN THE AGGREGATE) FOR DIRECT DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF YOUR OPERATION OR USE OF THE PRODUCT, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION (I.E., WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR TORT, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION NEGLIGENCE OR STRICT LIABILITY), SHALL NOT EXCEED THE FEES ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU TO YACHT SENTINEL OR TO RESELLER FOR THE PRODUCT.

SPECIFICATIONS MAY CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE

To obtain service under this warranty, please return the item(s) in question to the point of purchase as all authorized distributors and dealers have a warranty program (where prior authorization is required before returning product). Yacht Sentinel Limited will not accept any shipment whatsoever for which prior authorization has not first been obtained.

The warranty for international customers is the same as for any customer within the United Kingdom, with the exception that Yacht Sentinel Limited shall not be responsible for any customs fees, taxes, or VAT that may be due. For those jurisdictions where the legal minimum warranty exceeds twelve months, this warranty will be equally extended to meet such legal minimum requirement.

Yacht Sentinel, directly or through its reseller, reserves the right to make Product updates and upgrades and deliver them to you (either directly or via its reseller), to keep the Product in good working condition during the term of this License.

Dealers, installers and/or others selling Yacht Sentinel Limited products are not authorized to modify this warranty or make any additional warranties that are binding on Yacht Sentinel Limited.

LIMITATIONS OF ALARM SYSTEMS

It must be understood that while Product is highly advanced and secure, it does not offer any guaranteed protection against burglary, fire, sinking, dead batteries or other emergency. This is due to a number of reasons, including by not limited to, inadequate or improper installation/positioning, sensor limitations, battery performance, wireless signal interruption, inadequate maintenance or the potential for the system or the NMEA 2000 network or the GSM signal to be compromised or circumvented or SAT phone or cell phone coverage area. As a result, Yacht Sentinel Limited does not represent that the alarm system will prevent personal injury or property, or in all cases provide adequate warning or protection.

Security systems should therefore be considered as one of many tools available to reduce risk and/or damage of burglary, fire, sinking, dead batteries or other emergencies. We also strongly recommend you to regularly maintain and test Product and stay aware of new and improved Yacht Sentinel products and developments.

CONFIDENTIALITY AND DATA PROTECTION

You undertake that you shall not at any time during this License and for a period of five (5) years after termination of this License, disclose to any confidential information which may have been disclosed to you during your use of the Product. You may disclose the Product confidential information only where required by law or a court of competent jurisdiction or any governmental or regulatory authority, or to your employees who have a need to know for the purpose of using this License (in all such cases you will ensure your employees are bound by confidentiality obligations no less stringent than in this License and you shall remain responsible for any breach by them). You will comply with your enhanced data protection obligations pursuant to Data Protection Laws when processing any personal data as an independent Data Controller (as defined in Data Protection Laws) for the purposes of this License. You shall notify Yacht Sentinel immediately and without undue delay on becoming aware of a personal data breach. Data Protection Laws shall mean: (i) Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR); (ii) the Data Protection Act 2018 as amended; and (iii) any national laws, regulations or legislation implementing or amending the foregoing from time to time. You agree to Yacht Sentinel processing your personal data where necessary for the performance of this License (and any other contract between you and Yacht Sentinel) in accordance with Yacht Sentinel’s obligations under Data Protection Laws and pursuant to its privacy policy.

WEB APPS & MOBILE APPS

By agreeing to these terms and conditions you should make sure that you read them carefully before using the web apps or mobile apps (together the ‘Apps’). Web apps or mobile apps include ‘Yacht Sentinel Hub’, ‘Sentinel Point 2’ and ‘Partner Platform’. There are provided to you at no cost. You are not allowed to copy, or modify the Apps, any part of the Apps, or our trademarks in any way. You are not allowed to attempt to extract the source code of the Apps, or make derivative versions of the Apps. The Apps themselves, and the trademark, database rights and other intellectual property rights related to it, still belong to Yacht Sentinel Ltd.

Yacht Sentinel Ltd is committed to ensuring that the Apps are as useful and efficient as possible. For that reason, we reserve the right to make changes to the Apps or charge for their services, at any time and for any reason. We will never charge you for the Apps or its services without making it very clear to you exactly what you are paying for.

The Apps store and process personal data and your boats information so that you have accurate information of your boat at all times. We therefore recommend that you do not jailbreak or root your phone, which is the process of removing software restrictions and limitations imposed by the official operating system of your device. If you do so the Apps will not work properly or at all.

You should also be aware that Yacht Sentinel Ltd will not take responsibility for functions of the Apps such as ability to download and store your boats information if you are offline and have not data connection. The Apps require an active internet connection to work so you will need either mobile data or WI-FI to access the application.

If you are using the Apps outside of an area with Wi-Fi, you should remember that your terms and agreement with your mobile network provider will still apply, as a result you may be charged by your mobile network provider for the cost of data for the duration of connection while using the application. Yacht Sentinel Ltd will not cover charges incurred by the use of satellite communication.

At some point we may wish to update the Apps. The Apps are currently available on Android and iOS. The system requirements for both systems may change over time, at that time you may need to update the Apps to the latest version of that operating system. Yacht Sentinel does not promise to always update the Apps to the iOS/Android version that you have installed on your device.
